The demand for access to Tennessee baseball has never been higher. The Volunteers arrived on the national baseball stage this year, taking home the SEC East crown and earning a No. 3 national seed in the NCAA Tournament. After a perfect showing in the Knoxville regional, the Vols advance to a super regional matchup against the LSU Tigers.
Ticket demand for this weekend is through the roof. Tennessee sold out quickly, leaving plenty of fans without even a chance of getting in the gate. Knowing they had a problem on their hands, the athletics department worked quickly. Following the suggestion of Jayson Swain, Danny White and his team organized a watch party outside of Lindsey Nelson.
The ‘Big Orange Block Party’ is a free event to attend and will feature a big-screen of the live broadcast. Games for kids and concession stands will also be made available. The party will open at 4:30 p.m. ET on Saturday, and will return 2.5 hours before first pitch on Sunday.
Tennessee and LSU are scheduled to begin on Saturday at 7 p.m. ET. Game 2 will be played at either noon or 3 p.m. ET on Sunday.
